Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OCED) has projected that that global economy will take a bigger hit than previous forecast in 2023 amid the Russia- Ukraine conflict and projected at 2.2%. During 77th United Nations General Assembly, looming famine in Somalia and other African countries was discussed and in wake of the humanitarian crisis in the Horn needs to be at the top of the international agenda, and we need commitment, resources and action urgently. Simultaneously, Pakistan flooding shows 'adapting' to climate change can be a dangerous illusion as one third of the country is under water during September 2022. The recent United Nations climate report embraced supporting Indigenous self-determination, recognizing Indigenous Peoples’ rights and supporting Indigenous knowledge-based adaptation for reducing climate change risks and effective adaptation.
